Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

It really captures hockey in it´s true form!

I think it´s an awesome game for kids that like sports games. There is the possibility of fighting on the ice rink but there´s no blood or anything. The graphics have improved sinse the last NHL game! You can now tell what player he is from the face behind the mask. I recomend it for real hockey fans but if you don´t really like hockey don´t buy it! It´s not worth 50 USD unless your a real hockey lover.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much consumerism
